Macron's statements; clear proof of interference in Iranian affairs
The remarks of the French President that the alleged "revolution" in Iran will have an impact on the Iranian nuclear talks corroborate the Iranian accusations of French meddling in the country.
During an interview for France Inter radio on Monday, November 14, the French President estimated that the current alleged "revolution" in Iran has an impact on the nuclear deal negotiations. The interview was recorded Friday with Elysée, after Emmanuel Macron's meeting with four members of delegations of Iranian regime-change mouthpieces, as described by Fars news, including a Washington-based journalist, Masih Alinejad.
Macron commented on the Western-induced hysteria surrounding the Iranian riots, saying that the "revolution changes a lot of things," adding that "the regime is weakened by Iran's internal situation and the demands that are hard to obtain."
He called for international sanctions against Iranian officials saying, "I am in favor of a strong diplomatic reaction and sanctions on the figures of the regime who have a responsibility" in what he called "the repression of this revolution," in an interview for France Inter radio.
Macron described the crackdown as "unprecedented," adding, "We don't rule out any option," he said, noting that Iran's government was already the target of numerous sanctions.
He repeatedly used the word "revolution" to describe what was happening in Iran, while accusing the government of "cracking down" on the western-instigated riots.
Was it a mere coincidence that when he welcomed pro-Western Iranians who are strong advocates of regime change in Iran he brought up the issue of the so-called "revolution" having an impact on Iran's nuclear talks? Or does it stand as clear proof of the real intentions of the west, particularly France in this case?
As a matter of fact, one can only say that the French President has actually confessed to interference in Iran's affairs, albeit indirectly and unintentionally, having brought up the impact of the riots on the nuclear talks, which only confirms the Iranian accusations of Western interference in the country.
But how is it so? The answer lies in Iran's statements via different officials all along, from day one.
Western meddling in Iran
The Assistant Commander of the IRGC for Political Affairs, Brigadier General Yadollah Javani, confirmed on November 11 that one of the enemy's goals in destabilizing the country and trying to repeat the Syrian scenario in Iran is to influence the nuclear negotiations and obtain some concessions.
During a speech at a symposium entitled "From protests to riots," Javani said all the "enemies have united to confront the government in Iran."
In the same context, Iranian Army Commander, Maj. Gen. Seyyed Abdolrahim Mousavi, considered on November 7 that the riots in Iran were part of the US plan to disrupt the negotiations on the restoration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Mass riots began in Iran in mid-September in connection with the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. Iranian authorities have accused Western countries of fueling the riots, and European diplomats were given a note of protest in connection with anti-Iranian media reports and calls to overthrow the country's government.
"The recent unrest in Iran was part of US efforts to disrupt the negotiations in Vienna [on the JCPOA]," Mousavi was quoted as saying by Iranian state broadcaster IRIB.
Foreign intelligence services behind riots
Foreign intelligence was never absent from the Iranian arena ever since the riots started.
Earlier, a spokesperson for the Iranian Parliament's presiding board, Nizamuddin Mousavi, stated that the Minister of Interior submitted a report on recent developments in the investigation into Mahsa Amini's death.
On September 23, the Iranian Minister of Interior Ahmad Vahidi confirmed that "reports, evidence, and medical examinations confirm that Amini was not beaten," which refutes western media claims that the Iranian woman was brutally beaten while in morality police custody.
Mousavi said that "there are individuals linked to foreign organizations, intelligence services, and terrorist groups that had a hand in fomenting the recent riots." He pointed out that "estimates indicate that some 45,000 people formed networks across the country, some of whom have been arrested."
Who trained the riot leaders?
Referring to the recent riots, Vahidi considered that the enemy harnessed all its energies, including the media, in order to undermine national unity but suffered defeat in the face of the vigilance and insight of the coherent Iranian people that were able to thwart this scheme.
It is noteworthy that in late October, the Iranian Intelligence Ministry and the IRGC's intelligence wing revealed that intelligence obtained by Tehran indicates that the CIA and allied intelligence services planned a conspiracy against the Islamic Republic.
"The conspiracy's goal is to commit a crime against the Iranian people and the territorial integrity of Iran," the statement underlined.
"The main perpetrators were the CIA, the British and Saudi intelligence services, the Israeli Mossad, and the intelligence services of other countries," it read, indicating that "the planning and the execution of the majority of the riots were carried out by the Mossad in collaboration with terrorist organizations."
French nationals confess to unrest in Iran
It is worth noting that Iran released a video on October 6 of two French citizens, Cecile Kohler and Jacque Paris, arrested for espionage in Tehran. The two are unionists with France's National Federation of Education, Culture, and Vocational Training.
In the clips, Kohler confessed to being an “intelligence and operation agent of French foreign security service.” The two French nationals infiltrated into Iran as tourists on April 28 but turned out to be spies for Western intelligence agencies.
According to the Iranian Intelligence Ministry, the duo attempted to foment instability and social disorder earlier in June when some teachers took to the streets in peaceful protests to demand fair wages and better working conditions.
Macron's 'double standards' exposed through social media
Some wrote on social media platforms against Macron's anti-Iran statements, highlighting the French President's double standards. Some reminded him of France's colonial past, stating that Iran will teach him a lesson this time, while others slammed him for undertaking the mission of defending what he called a "revolution" to describe riots in a country while turning a blind eye to the crimes and slavery practices of Qatar.
Alors que la 🇫🇷est au bord de l'explosion #Macron se permet de donner des leçons à l'Iran. En effet, pas un mot sur le Qatar et ses crimes ses pratiques esclavagiste. La 🇫🇷 devient un autre islam, venu de celui qui a enlevé le sourire aux 🇫🇷 tartufferie, foutaises et incompétence— Erwan Brehat (@BrehatErwan) November 14, 2022
Translation: While France is on the verge of exploding, Macron allows himself to give Iran lessons, while not saying a word about Qatar and its crimes and slavery practices.
La france n'a décidemment pas retenu la leçon de ses nombreuses ingérences dans la politique interne des autres pays apparemment. L'iran va vous apprendre ça— Ekolo la patrie (@OliverS92608298) November 14, 2022
Translation: France decided not to learn from its past interferences in the internal affairs of other countries. Iran will teach it that.
Now, what about the French protests, and how did Macron handle them? The President demonstrated utmost hypocrisy by criticizing Iran while his people were prevented from merely expressing themselves during the recent French protests.
Macron confidently defended the Iranian riots as a "revolution", while designating the French protests as riots. He criticized the Iranian government's "violent suppression" while allowing his security forces to crack down on protests against the deteriorating livelihood in France.
Moreover, 100 injuries were reported in clashes between environmentalists and French police at a protest on October 31 against the building of a sizable water reservoir for farm irrigation in western France, according to the authorities. About 60 gendarmes and 30 demonstrators were injured in the protest, which the authorities tried to suppress in the Sainte-Solin area.

Additionally, tens of thousands of French people took to the streets last month in protest of the government's performance, Macron's economic plans for the country, and the rising costs of living. The protests were predominantly led by the country's leftist coalition.
So, technically, when people protest for their most basic rights in a European country, they are attacked and beaten under the pretext of putting an end to riots.
In stark contrast, the actual riots taking place in Iran, coupled with vandalism, violence, murders, and arson, which are in fact instigated by the very natural death of Mahsa Amini, are hailed as acts of "democracy" that ought to be protected by all means necessary, even if that leads to the violation of a country's sovereignty and interference in its internal affairs through collaborators and proxies, such as the terrorist groups MEK and ISIS.
The aim behind all that is going on in the Islamic Republic of Iran is terrorizing and fomenting unrest in the West Asian country after all the development and progress it has achieved at all levels. Rising as a key influential player in the region, all eyes, whether friends' or foes', remain focused on the Islamic Republic either to build or to tear down bridges.
